Every Moment Matters

I was excited for April to come so I could play along with the next challenge from The CAS Mix Up Challenge run by Loll and Bonnie.  This month they want us to play with stamps and stencils along with other mixed media of our choice from the list on their sidebar.
And here's the card I created.  I used the beautiful Eve, a Modern Woman stencil from Stencil Girl with WV Archival Pink Peony Ink on a white card stock panel, placed slightly off center.  Then I randomly stamped the WV Script Background in WV Archival Fern Green Ink along 2 edges.  I stapled a piece of Idea-ology Film Strip on the side.
I stamped the sentiment from WV Artful Life set on a square of patterned paper using Archival Jet Black Ink and heat dried it.  I put Glossy Accents over an Idea-ology Fragment tile and laid it over the sentiment/patterned paper.  I adhered it with ScorTape over the film strip.
To finish off my design - I added a few Sugar Blend sequins from Avery Elle.
I'm also linking my card to:
The Fragment tile, loosely stapled film strip ribbon and sequins add dimension to my card.
